New Partnership Celebrate First Win

The recently formed partnership of Mike Moroney and Pam Gerard took little time in getting runs on the board with Sororia (pictured) taking out the Rating 75 event over 1400m at Te Aroha on Wednesday – only a week into the newly established Ballymore Stables NZ training combination.

Ridden by leading jockey Lisa Alpress, Sororia found herself positioned in the latter half of the field, after drawing wide, before Alpress opted to make her move early in the race as a result of the leaders looking to run away on the bend.

Sororia produced a strong sustained run that saw her lengthen stylishly down the straight and win by a comfortable 1.5 lengths.

“It was a very strong fresh up performance and bodes very well for her campaign going forward,” co-trainer Pam Gerard said.

“I’m very happy to record my first winner with Mike and it was even more rewarding for it to be in the stable colours – let’s hope there’s plenty more to come!”

Sororia derives from the great Soliloquy family and is a very close relation to Group 1 winners Eileen Dubh, Culminate, Captivate as well as this season’s Group 2 Avondale Cup winner Sacred Master.
